Pecha kucha style: How pecha kucha presentations help students write and think better
Wednesday, October 23 2:45 PM-3:05 PM
A pecha kucha consists of 20 images, each narrated for 20 seconds, resulting in a 6 minute and 40 second presentation. It's useful to think of pecha kuchas as multimedia haiku. This presentation focuses on the results garnered from using pecha kucha presentations in doctoral education courses over several semesters. The survey results (quantitative and qualitative) indicate pecha kuchas were found to be highly useful for students. The surprising finding was that pecha kuchas seem to be particularly effective when paired with an extensive writing assignment. The presentation will discuss how this pairing was done, and why it was effective.
